I did something last weekend that I haven't done in years.
No, really, it's been years!
I polished my furniture.
This is something that I used to do almost on a weekly basis.
Since moving here though, it's mostly been dust and wipe off spills.
Well, last Friday I was doing a little grocery shopping and found myself in the cleaning aisle where I spotted the cans of Mr Sheen.
Did you know there's a "Citrus Shine" variety now? I didn't.
Aha! I thought. Lemony. I like lemon fragrance. I think I'll try it.
I spent Saturday going from room to room, clearing surfaces and polishing like I was expecting visitors.
But you know what? The Citrus Shine stuff smells a bit like insecticide. Not a lot, just faintly.
Maybe there is an ingredient added to deter termites and other wood loving creepy crawlies? Wood lice?
But I'm getting quite a bit of satisfaction looking around at softly gleaming surfaces that have been crying out for polish for way too long.
So I'll keep using it. But maybe once this can is empty I'll switch back to the "Original" fragrance.
